Trivia

The film was originally going to be a Scott Free Productions project, when it was acquired in 2008. Joe Russo was to direct, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott were to be the executive producers, Michael Costigan was to be the producer and Jim Sturgess was to play Sidney Hall. Pre-production halted in 2009, however, and no development took place until the writer, Shawn Christensen, looked to take the project under his wing in late 2014. See more »

Goofs

When Sidney is lying in his front yard, he has his hands behind his head. But when Brett walks up he removes his right and lays it on his chest. But in the next camera shot, both hands are behind his head again. See more »

Quotes

Sidney Hall: Once Melody left me, it dawned on me, looking out at all of those wonderful city lights, that I was just one of those millions of city lights, a tiny little pixel, buried within the white noise of life, blinking on for just a brief second in time.

The critics aren't you
25 March 2018 | by hayashida-19343See all my reviews

I was blessed with the beautiful opportunity of watching this movie at a festival. I was dazzled by the flow of the story, the subjects, the intertwined destiny of the characters. From my point of opinion I advice you: don't belive that bunch of smug critics. They don't know what they are saying. They are stuck in a era of superheroes, superstars, supershine movies. Make your own destiny. Watch this movie. Watch a movie no matter what the critics say. Do not trust them. Anymore.
